|Seen a little of many places, met sweet folks, met some mean ones, too....... findAgravers are the same ;0)|
Lost some dear folk, so I appreciate those who are still around and find comfort in the memories, which have been experienced, remembered, cherished, and passed down.
Personally, I make a lot of mistakes, but I do try to be kind, honest, and giving. Some may disagree, but most don't. My life is a work-in-progress, I can try my best, but I've the joy of working from a better stance, for I've been forgiven and am loved by God Almighty Himself! Amazing.
God loves you, too. He came, as Jesus, to forgive, to restore, to bring fulfillment and abiding peace. He will do so, if you but ask Him to do so. He created you with a plan and a purpose!
Read the Bible, talk to Him, follow Him, and He will show you the way.
Romans 3:23 and 6:23 and 10:9-11;
II Corinthians 5:17;
I Corinthians 15:51-58;
and Colossians 3:1-4.
Biggest blessing of my life -
Knowing Jesus the Messiah.
I pray you know Him too.
Regardless, happy family-history hunting!

|Rodney Dillon Jr.||Dodge & Lynde|
Hi June Bug,
Sorry it's taken me so long to answer your GenForum post--it's a long story, but at least I found you.
Many thanks for the info. you sent. I had much of the same info., except for one very important piece--that Adelia Lynde was a Dodge too! I had her maiden name as Crouch, but that must have been a first married name?
I am a direct descendant of Benjamin Lawrence, who was almost certainly Eunice (Lawrence) Dodge's brother. In 1802 Eunice gave a mortgage for $400 on 1.5 acres in Claremont to Benjamin. I think I know who their parents were, but have yet to document it.
I think John Dodge died about 1855 and Eunice about 1861. The old listing on Findagrave had their graves as that of children, aged 7 and 3. Those old stones were nearly illegible,though, and I believe those age numbers were probably 87 and 93. That would fit in the date range we have.
Edwin, whose descendants you are tracing, I have as son of Lucy Heald. Interesting, since my Mom's sister married a Heald and I have Heald cousins in Ohio. Their family was originally from Mass., I believe.
Denny and Eunice's son, John Dodge Lynde, did live in Philadelphia. He was quite an inventor, and developed one of the first aerosol dispensers. His 1862 patent is witnessed by his father, Denny. John died Nov. 28, 1911 in Haddonfield, N.J., according to his obit. in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
I hope this is helpful and look forward to exchanging additional info.

thanks for bringing the duplicate entries of these to my attention; the ones I maintain are the original ones and are in the right cemetery; the other entry holder had the entries located in Grayson County
|Bev Golden||Henry Lynde|
Thanks for the correction and additional information. I've transferred Henry to you as I see you're doing a lot of research on the family. Bev

|Barbara Cox||Joshua Lisenby 71544169|
Glad you found the wife Elizabeth you were looking for. If the obit is digital, you can add it as a photo, or if you would like it to be added as a text in his bio, send it on and I'll be glad to add it.
|Julie Doty||Elizabeth & William J Adam|
Hi Junebug, Thank you for the information you provided for Elizabeth & William. I have added a copy of what you sent in their Bio sections. Sincerely, Julie
|Mary Collier||Dorothy Spurgeon headstone picture|
Thank you for taking the picture of Dorothy Spurgeons headstone at Shipman Cemetery. It is a very nice picture and adds so much to the memorial. I see that you also took the time to create a memorial for Dorothy's husband Colonel Spurgeon. That was very thoughtful of you. We are blessed to have volunteers like you who are interested in preserving family history. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
